Israel was founded for one reason--to be a Jewish nation as a homeland for the Jews. Israel was to be the homeland where Jews could go to escape from Christians, Arabs, Communists and anyone else who abused and misused Jews in other nations. Israel was not founded to be just another generic Gentilistan, despite what historic revisionists or semi-literate hack politicians such as Peretz would have us believe. Arab Moslems have 57 other nations they can move to in the Organization of the Islamic Conference. Jews have no other Jewish nation to move to. Israeli Jews must decide whether or not Israel is to survive as the only Jewish nation in the world, or become just another generic Gentilistan.
